A dress is much more than a piece of cute fabric to cover the body, tells a story, stitched together by thread and creativity, represents possibilities. The opportunity to feel special, unique or part of something, to turn you into who you would like to be or to reveal to the world who you really are. It can transport you to Provence to have breakfast with baguettes and butter and then to drink tea in the English countryside. You can meet at the same time Michael Jackson, Nick Cave at the time of the Birthday Party, the writers of the Lost Generation, Edgar Allan Poe and Beethoven. It can show you the magic behind everyday life by elevating the workwear to the height of coolness; flirt with steam punk or remember the perfection of tailoring codes that for years have been the basis of masculine elegance. Itcan accompany you to visit a museum and let you lose yourself between the art of the American Raymond Pettibon and the photographs of Colin Snapp or can take you to the cinema and alternate in front of your eyes the face of Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange and that of Laura Dern in Blue Velvet. A dress is a world that contains other worlds, parallel universes where style, art, history, society, people, a thousand nuances coexist. These are those of the Paris Men's Fashion Week FW19.
